Wade responds to Amare's "hunting" shot

By Tom Haberstroh

This is fun: ESPN New York's Ian Begley lets us in on a little exchange between Amare Stoudemire and Josh Harrellson on Wednesday night. The story:
Funny conversation in the Knicks' locker room after their preseason game against the Nets.

Josh Harrellson, an avid hunter, asked Amare Stoudemire where they could go hunting this season.

Stoudemire replied, 'South Beach.'

A half-amused, half-confused Harrellson asked Stoudemire, 'What can we hunt in South Beach?'

Stoudemire replied, 'We're hunting D-Wade and LeBron.'

Shots fired.

Stoudemire trained in Miami in the offseason at the Florida International campus and he's one of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade's close friends. Of course, the two Heat All-Stars wouldn't take this very lightly.

On Thursday morning, Wade took to his Twitter account and sent over his counter in front of everyone:

@Amareisreal I got those "hunting" tips for you. Hit me on the cell L2MSThu Dec 22 15:46:13 via UberSocial for BlackBerry



Obviously, Wade might be playing it up for the fans on this one. He could have called or texted Stoudemire himself. But there's no doubt that this has stirred up more intrigue between the Heat and Knicks this season. They meet for the first time on Jan. 27 in Miami and have two more matchups slated for later in the season.

Wondering what "L2MS" stands for? I'll let Dwyane explain.
